I do wish that Hiro guy would stop releasing all the things I'd like to build at prices I can't remotely afford...

I'd like Italeri or Revell Germany to step into the breach...

bestest,
M.

Why the wait? when they rebox they cut sprue and jam them into our native boxes and stuff has higher chance of showing up broken lol

I think only the GTO is getting the Revell NA rebox. At least the reboxes are in normal boxes and molded in white. I don't like the flat boxes or them always being molded inconsistently in red (red body, gray hood??).

I enjoy Ferrari builds, my goal being to avoid bright red as much as possible and do them in the non-obvious colors. :)

At this point, only the 599 GTO is getting the US rebox. I know this because Revell said so. I brought them my Italeri 250 SWB to see if they could clip it into the US Box, but it could not. They RoG didn't make the deal with Italeri anyway.

I still have, unbuilt, a lot of the Italeri Ferraris such as the 275 GTB and GTS, 250 SWB, 250 California, etc. So Revell could actually look at the sprues to see if there were cut points that be used.

On the SA Aperta, since only 80 were (offically) made, it was deemed less desireable to US Box than the 599 GTO. They could always change their minds. But that is where they currently stand.

I also made a case for them to get RoG to do the F12 Berlinetta and Enzo replacement. I know Fujimi is doing the F12, but we saw the quality difference on the 458's. I have a Fujimi F12 on pre-order and will evaluate it when it shows up.

Thats some good info, like I said, I plan on getting both, but I want to get the SA first, then it will be the GTO

Rob, I enjoy a good Ferrari build as well, but I did to many in row, need a break, now if I could get my hands on the 250 California, I would be building that one right away ;)

Yeah, I finally got one of those this past summer along w/ the 275 GTB and 275 spyder kits...now if only there was a 1:24th scale kit of the Lusso...

There is a Lusso, but it is resin, costs $170 and needs a 250 GTO or SWB to complete. Not something most folks will go for. And let's not discuss the upcoming Model Factory Hiro 250 Lusso that is likely to be well above $350. Only, if Italeri or RoG would do a Lusso.

Yes, I know of the resin ones but that's more than I'm interested in paying..would be nice if RoG would do one (does Italeri even do any new tooling anymore?)
